We Need Help, Get Our New Songbook & Encyclopedia
Wed., Feb. 10. 2016 2:59pm EST

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here.

I have good news and bad news.

First, the bad: the band has a number of overdue bills and is way behind on my paychecks. It's a serious source of stress, though I'm trying to trust in God and continue what I believe He's called us to do. But we need help.

Now the good: we've just released the new ApologetiX Songbook (1993-2015). Over 600 pages long, this interactive e-book has too many cool features to list here. You can get it now for $19.99 or read more about it at http://apologetix.com/store/store.php#songbook.

But, before you check it out, here's some more good news:

In a few weeks, we plan to release another e-book -- the ApologetiX Encyclopedia. Two months ago, I started going through thousands of our photos and documents from the past 25 years, assembling stuff I think will be of most interest to fans.

The ApologetiX Encyclopedia will contain copies all kinds of things you've never seen: tons of rare photos, flyers, posters, articles, and even the original handwritten notes I made when writing some of our best-loved parodies, including many alternate lines.

It will also have features on the many past and present members and line-ups of the band and at least 150 notable concerts we played (and what made them special). And maybe some info on songs from the vaults you've never heard.

We'll give both the songbook (now) and the encyclopedia (when it comes out) to any fan who gives a donation of $100 or more now to help us through our current crisis at apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php

It's a strange time for me. The financial situation is really getting me down, but putting together the songbook and the encyclopedia (plus all the new songs we're working on) has really been exciting. It's a reminder of the great things God has done for us already. I think He has more in store.

If you'd like to be a part of it, any of these will help:

1. Pray
2. Get our new songbook at http://apologetix.com/store/store.php#songbook
3. Get any of our CDs, DVDs, or singles
4. Make an online donation at: apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php
5. Donate by check payable to "ApologetiX" and sent to ApologetiX, 208 Charlemma Drive, Pittsburgh PA 15214-1414.

Donations aren't tax deductible, but they're a huge part of keeping this ministry going. Thank you!
